Kumaravel Chettinad Meals, Teynampet

Thanks to the high fever, cough n cold and yeah to the rains also. I was on house arrest mode for the past ten days and was put on a bland diet. So ten days (add the diwali week to it) of no spice and meat left me mad and craving for anything spicy. When I felt better (after those severe antibiotic course) the first thing I wanted to do is eat some nice spicy meaty food. Fellow foodie buddies were also planning to meet up for lunch. So we all landed at Kumaravel Chettinad Mess for lunch. The place can seat around 20 ppl at a time and was very clean and well maintained. It was almost empty when we went and later crowd started pouring in.

A pack of 8.5 carnivores and a poor veggie soul were ready to attack whatever came our way. We had several plates of prawn masala, brain, liver, mutton chukka, chicken roast, sura puttu, quail, fish fry etc. Out of all liked the prawn masala a lot. Small prawns cooked perfectly in a spicy peppery masala, it was yumm. Sura puttu and chicken podimas were good too. The shredded meat along with crunchy onions and the tadka was very good. Chicken 65 was delicious. The meat was soft and juicy and the marination was quite unique with a mild tangy flavour.

Other dishes like the mutton chukka, chicken roast, quail and all had wonderful meat but unfortunately the masala was pretty same in all the meat. That was kind of boring. May be it happens when you order almost all the items off the menu :P

I'm not a big fan of dishes like brain, liver and botti. Tasted brain alone and felt it needs more masala. Friends who had liver and botti found it to be average only. The fish fry was well cooked but very less spicy inspite of asking for a spicy version. For mains we ordered few chicken biriyani and non veg meals. The meals seemed to be good. Comes with a chicken, mutton gravies and a curry and kootu. Even the veggie soul liked their sambhar and karakuzhambu a lot. I tasted little bit of rasam and it was excellent. While the meals was scoring good feedback, biriyani was a disaster. Rice was not cooked properly. Masala was not enough and even the little masala they had didn't blend properly. Flavour was missing. But the accompanying gravy was very good.

Service was a bit slow. They were struggling to manage the crowd and keep up with the orders. The total bill was 4k which summed up to 600 per head approximately. They didn't charge for the biriyani which was a good gesture from their side. Will definitely go back for meals soon.
